As the first Westerners who had visited Japan said: "They are exotic, TOO exotic."

WHAT?? Number 1?

Japanese people are weird. Why do they like being trolled?
They are promoting future trolls in anime.

This is only bamboo leaf, so its understandable that people want it.

What people have to wait for is the SECOND Endless Eight DVD, cause I know the first will do ok.


Ok.. probably will be less than this one, but still will be at top 5 at least XDD

LOL SHnYS2 at top.... the merchindising strategy of KyoAni is working as always!!!

japanese otaku (and in some kind of level, me too) loves to be trolled! XP

More like hypnotized. xD

Yay for Top 10!

And Japanese otakus really buy ANYTHING related to Haruhi and Gundam.

And about E8 sales: even w/ a 50% drop, Haruhi will still top Kuroshitsuji. Kadokawa, you won.
